My family and I were staying in Marion this week and made a last minute decision to have dinner at Low Country Dining. Our hotel listed them as a local restaurant and they had good reviews on tripadvisor. We arrived at 8:15pm believing the restaurant closed at 9pm. Upon arrival we learned they really closed at 8:30pm. Geanna and Tess... More

My family and I dined here this evening. We thought they closed at 9, but they close at 8:30. We arrived at 8:20. We immediately apologized for arriving so late but they welcomed us warmly. Jeanna and Tess treated us like guests in their home. Mike the owner was there and he was also very friendly. If you want to... More

Passing through and chose this place due to TA reviews. Seafood combo was swai and shrimp and was perfectly seasoned and breaded and fried. Not greasy. Baked new potatoes. Green beans (did not taste like a can). Attentive service. Waitress was enthusiastically knowledgeable about menu items. Will come back here if in town again.

I was in Marion recently for a work training. Let me explain that Marion is a small town in the North Carolina mountains. That being said, Low Country was recommended by a local, so we decided to try it. The server was very friendly, as was the owner who stopped by to chat. I tried the fried green tomatoes, which...

great value for the fish. Very tasty. The steaks are real good too. Service is always great. Located on Main Street in Marion, Low Country Dining is conveniently located, has a nice ambiance with brick and wood decor with some art & pictures displayed. It's as appealing as any old fashioned kitchen with delicious food.

Low Country has the best dinner venue in this, and surrounding area's. The Chef / Owner makes sure everything is perfect. The staff are courteous, friendly and professional. Menu offers local favorites and features specialties daily. Great bar also.

Our family lives in Marion. When we are looking for a "nice" dinner but don't want to travel to Morganton or Asheville, Low Country is our go-to restaurant. The owner (who occasionally doubles as the chef) is always friendly to everyone, always. Low Country is a great place to have a drink if you are looking for something different that... More

We were staying near Marion, and wanted to eat at a local place. This was a really nice one. When one of us was not sure which beer to get, the waitress brought tasting samples of a couple of them. That is good service. The food was good, and the place was full of locals, so we found exactly what... More

First I must start by saying the last reviewer has Low Country confused with Countryside BBQ! Low Country is high end dining, not food that comes out in 5 minutes, and they don't have a front porch with rocking chairs (as soon as I read that I realized they were describing Countryside BBQ). Low Country is on Main Street, and... More
